Price chart analysis revealed that the DOT  token has suffered from the hands of bears since 4 May. The price of the token has since embarked on a steady decline. Ever since the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been housed beneath the 50 neutral zone. Oversold at press time, the RSI was spotted at 30. 

A bullish run might be far from sight- With the MACD line intersecting the trend line on a downward curve since 11 June, the bears might be here for a while.
